Bought a new table saw this year – for the safety features. And retired my dad’s old Delta Homecraft, pictured above (no safety features). I still have it, tucked away under the basement stairs now … because I cannot part with it. He did so much, with that saw. I was witness to almost all of it.
Looking at the Delta – all cast iron and steel. Still cuts as true as ever. Just a tad unsafe to use, by today’s standards.
The brand spanking new DeWalt – all the newest safety features. But light weight. Cuts true though. And the safety features work – this I know.
The upper half of the last thing I made with my dad’s old Delta – a basement door.
And all the pics, for you table saw buffs out there …
